With Scarlett Johansson stalking around in a sexy catsuit and Gwyneth Paltrow smooching up a storm with Robert Downey Junior, it comes as no surprise the set of Iron Man 2 was hot.
The blockbuster premiered in Aussie cinemas last night and is being lauded a financial success but a dud with critics.
The film includes a bit of a pash between Paltrow's character Pepper Potts and Downey Jr's Tony Stark, which got a bit awkward.
"I couldn't get her off me. It was embarrassing," said Downey Jr .
"It was great because both my husband and his wife were right there," said Paltrow.
"She said to me that I didn’t know what I was doing, like it didn’t feel good, and I was like, ‘You know what, first of all, we’re all friends so what would be creepy was if I was coming off all sexy to you,’ and by the way I’ve done that in movies and it creeps them out," explained Downey.
"Despite what she said on set she still thinks about it."
The film features a cat suit-clad Johansson, who worked out heavily to embody the Black Widow. But Johansson said she liked her character's brain more than her curves.
"Of course they’re sexy characters and you have a sexy secretary or a girl swinging around by her ankles in a cat suit, that’s innately sexy. But the fact is that these characters are intelligent, are ambitious, motivated and calculated to some degree," she said.
"To be just a pawn in this story of a whole bunch of men fighting it out and rolling around and getting down and dirty and there you are to be the sort of vision in a tight cat-suit would be a boring thing to me."
Paltrow said the beautiful brains of Potts and the Black Widow elevate the movie to more than just a boy's action film.
"I think it’s a very smart decision actually to have women who are capable and intelligent because it appeals to women. So it’s not only a film for fifteen year old boys," Paltrow said.
"It’s a film that can relate to a lot of people on a lot of levels and a lot of my girlfriends like it because of the romance."
